Sad news for Green Day fans. Following the incident at the iHeartRadio festival where the band performed this week, the band’s rep announced today that Billie Joe Armstrong will be entering rehab for substance abuse. The news comes after producers at iHeartRadio cut Green Day’s set short for Usher and Rihanna, prompting Billie to flip them off, curse, and smash his guitar to pieces.
I was Team Green Day then and I’m Team Green Day now. If Billie is struggling I’m glad he’s getting help and we sincerely hope he gets better.
